. the question may now be when, not if, the republicans will cave on taxes. joining me now is dana milbank, columnist for "the washington post." he's writing about the republicans waving tax hikes and cynthia tucker and visiting professor of journalism at the university of georgia. thanks to both of you for being here tonight. >> hi, reverend. >> good to be here, reverend. >> dana, are republicans really ready to cave? >> well, reverend, first of all, terrific particular to see you and ann coulter on the same page. they've caved already. they have said, we're going to agree to an $800 billion tax increase. it's entirely possible that they are going to go off the cliff any way. it doesn't mean that a deal is imminent. it basically means that they surrender. they used to say that they wouldn't give a dime of tax increase for spending cuts. now they are saying, let's go and do it if we can get $3 of taxes for spending cuts. >> the choice may be down to, do they make the deal before the deadline or do they let it go over the cliff and then come back and vote the tax cuts for the medical class
, washington correspondent for news week and dana millbank, columnist for the washington post. thank you both for being here. >> hi, reverend. >> so the republicans have a blue ribbon panel. do you think they are ready to learn the lessons of this election? >> i think that you can disregard everything these guys said leading up to the election because they talk a good game and they have to have the, you know, bravado and whatnot. now, they really want to be back in power. and they've got to sit down and hammer out what's going to get them there. the problem is, the party can't decide. half of them think it's because mitt romney is too liberal and wasn't enough of a kind of d distinction from obama and half of them think he was just a lousy kacandidate for others reasons and maybe may should have gone with -- i don't know. jeb bush? part of the problem here is that the party itself can't decide what it wants to be. they have to solve this identity crisis on some level. >> now, you know, dana, bill crystal has a weekly stand in. very interestingly, he puts here that they're in deep disarray, th
on taxes and spending cuts? our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is up on capitol hill. what are you hearing, dana? >> reporter: the senate majority leader who told me he's one of the biggest pessimists says he thinks it's going to be very difficult to get a deal done by christmas. meanwhile, republicans don't have a lot of opposition to raising the tax rates tried a different tactic today. a new coordinated message from republicans searching for more secure political footing. mr. president, show us your cuts. >> where are the president's spending cuts? the longer the white house slow-walks this process, the closer our economy gets to the fiscal cliff. >> nobody should trust democrats to put a dime until real deficit reductions. >> reporter: to better understand the gop positioning, remember what any reduction deficit looks like drawn from two different pots of money. first, tax revenue. second, spending cuts likely to center on changes to entitlements like medicare. on revenues, republicans already conceded to tax increases for the wealthy. the big sticking point is what kin
there in the middlefield covering it. it was tough. >> eric: quick thought. heritage founder leader, a good pick. >> dana: i think so, too. great one more thing. it's been outrage how greg has treated me on this show. i am going to report him to human resources as soon as we leave. >> eric: leave it there. thank you for watching. >> dana: adios! >> bret: the elephant in the room, as we stand on the essential of the fiscal cliff. what the president does not want to talk about. plus senator jim demint is here to tell you why he is leighing the senate. this is "special report." this is "special report." ♪ ♪ good evening >> good evening. i'm bret baier. much of the public debate focuses on taxes. democrat want to raise them on high earners. republicans don't. but there is another part of the equation that gets less attention. that is spending cuts. chief white house correspondent ed henry looks in to that tonight. >> reporter: pulling on the heart strings as if he were back on the campaign trail, president obama visited middle class family in virginia. >> a couple of thousand dollars means a couple month
" in just a moment. first, let's get some background from our senior congressional correspondent dana bash joining us from capitol hill. i think it's fair to say, dana, all of us were stunned by this announcement today. >> reporter: that's right, wolf. well, senator demint had always said he was going to limit himself to two terms in the senate. but he's not even halfway through his second term and saying he's going to leave in january with almost four years left. i'm told he didn't tell his staff about his decision until this morning right before it was made public. but he said this was an offer to go to this conservative think tank he couldn't pass up. jim demint's announcement that he's leaving the senate was a stunner. >> i honestly believe i can do a lot more on the outside than i can on the inside. >> reporter: the anti-government, anti-tax conservative crusader certainly made a mark on the inside. on the senate floor, a frequent voice of objection against legislation backed by both parties. >> is there any objection? >> mr. president, i object. >> reporter: just this week he helped
no previous indication he might quit now. i want to go to dana bash joining me on the phone here. dana, huge surprise to a lot of people. what's behind the resignation. >> reporter: a huge stunner. nobody saw it coming. i was told by a source close to demint he didn't accept the job until yesterday telling the staff this morning, called the governor in south carolina who, of course, will have to appoint the successor and told the republican leaders here. but look. the reason why it's such a surprise is because demint really has been over the past few years somebody who takes pride in his job. and the role that any one senator can do, which is to gum up the works and very much, obviously, an inside job. he said he could be better outside than inside an he said he feels better about leaving because he has been able to get a number -- really, half a dozen tea party-like conservatives elected. >> let me jump in, dana. i want to run through them because, you know, when we think senator demint we think of a tea party stronghold within the u.s. senate and helped and also hurt a number of republican
created we have to get this behind us. >> joining me now, dana millbank and kristina. it's great to have you both here. bob corker said the idea of raising taxes on the top 2% has merit. the question is how much merit it has with speaker boehner and the republican party. where disease it stand? >> we have been hearing more and more encouraging noises. the republicans have taken steps in that right direction. i wouldn't get too mesmerized. there's incentive for them not to strike a deal at least until the last deal. i think you can count on them to do the right thing. after all the possibilities are exhausted. >> not everything is exhausted yet, just us talking about it. christina, elijah cummings says there's a deal 70% chance of happening. think about that. 30% chance of failing. what are you hearing in washington? >> well, you know, anybody that does predictions, you never know what is going to happen. >> unless your name is silver. >> exactly. there's a lot of time here. we are looking at today is december 9th. congress likes to take things to the brink. the pressure of the holidays a
to a couple, dana that and anthony devigne know, who run their own electrical contracting business, here's what they told us. >> people want their work done right away, and we're working as hard as we can to get that done for them. >> and i'm a firm believer in taking the work while it's there, so we really don't pass up too much. if we have to work saturdays and sundays, we will. >> reporter: no vacations in the near future? >> maybe after. after, when it settles a little bit. we'll be good. >> reporter: and that could take a couple of years according to anthony and another benefit to this storm would be retail businesses like home depot here which has seen a surge in business here. people coming in for their lumber and electrical panels and sheet rock and insulation, tools and supplies. and the stores in this region in long island, in new york city and in new jersey are hiring 500 new workers because of the increase in business. listen. >> this has been very devastating to the areas around us with the amount of homes that were impacted from it that there's a lot of restoration work tha
on this one. >> dana milbank said republicans had not merely thrown up the white flag, but the white bed sheet. i think you have seen movement on the part of republicans, that they're willing to give the government $800 billion of revenue and the president hasn't been willing to meet that because of his fetish about raising tax rates on the top 2%. but as for negotiations, i rather like jeff sessions, the senator's suggestion that these are really big issues and very big decisions that should be made by our elected representatives in the senate and in the house. i'm not sure i like this idea that the president and the house majority leader, a republican, get to meet behind closed doors and get to make enormous fiscal decisions just between the two of them. >> do you think more would get done if they did this in front of the cameras? >> i actually think it should be one extreme or the other. they should either lock them behind closed doors until they get something done, let them hash it out, and then come out and announce the deal that we're not going to go over the fiscal cliff, or put everyth

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: sexy liberal john fugelsang he got in early so he snatched him and we'll have him all next hour as well. and of course in washington, d.c. with january 19th which john fugelsang tickets going incredibly fast. >> incredibly fast especially because now we're going to have to do 400 shows in michigan this year. some see it it could be the last chance to see aisha and hal -- >> stephanie: and chris and jim and jacki are opening the show for us. >> they are. and we're g
